Ken Block is back with quite a surprising car this time, an all wheel drive, 6.7 liter Rouch Yates V8 Mustang from 1965 producing 845 hp and 720 lb.-ft of torque! The car just looks mad! Probably the most bonkers Mustang ever built and he is drifting the shit out of it on the streets of LA playing around with cops and other low riders. The project has been achieved with the collaboration of Vaughn Gittin Jr and his RTR team. “This is hands-down the best Gymkhana car I’ve had yet,” said Ken Block on an interview with Top Gear a couple of weeks ago. The drifting isn’t as impressive as in the previous videos with the all mighty Fiesta to be honest. We are used to much crazier stunts and jumps from Mr.Block! But enough talking for now! Enjoy the show!!
It ain’t anymore just about burning rubber and avoid walls, some balls have been added to the equation! 2014 FIFA World Cup star Neymar Jr. & his freestyle team take on Gymkhana king Ken Block in his 650-HP Ford Fiesta rally car in a battle between man and machine creating what they call Footkhana, a mix of football and Gymkhana. As Neymar and his freestyle teammates use their football skills to score goals, Ken and his overpowered Fiesta drifts, blasting soccer balls into the net. Well it is not as impressive as what we are use to with Ken but it is a nice and fresh new idea. Very smart move by Castrol sponsoring the match, regrouping in the same video, the YouTube phenomenon Ken Block and FIFA World Cup star Neymar Jr. & his freestyle team targeting not only football fans but car fans as well. The complete videos got more than a 8 million views in just 3 days.
As carfreaks, you must have seen the Ken Block’s Gymkhana 6 by now. If you haven’t check the KenBlock Category of TheAdsGarage ASAP!! Here below is the same Gymkhana filmed entirely with a couple of brand new GoPro Hero3+ and edited by GoPro themselves. Not only it is an awesome way for GoPro to advertise their new born and prove, once again, that it is the most versatile camera you can buy but also, an Epic way of letting us enjoy that last Gymkhana in a bunch of new angles. I think there is no better way of feeling the thrill of the drift while sitting at home!
TheAdsGarage is back right on time to share with you car freaks, the brand new Ken Block Gymkhana 6 video. With his modified AWD Fiesta ST sports 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, good for a claimed 0-60 mph in 1.8 seconds, Kenny is ready to burn some rubber. This time, the goal was to design the Ultimate Gymkhana Grid Course. In addition to the usual tight turns, the course features new obstacles including a wrecking ball, a pair of moving Lamborghini Aventadors, and more. The result is not as impressive as the last gymkhana in San Francisco and what the hell are those plastic thingies on his front wheels? Gymkhana Six incorporates elements from Need for Speed Rivals such as video-game themed Redview County cops on Segways. Block is indeed the new Racing Advisor for the Need for Speed franchise. Will this mean that Rivals will feature a Gymkhana course or Ken’s Fiesta? We’ll have to wait until November the 22nd for the official release of the game! For now, enjoy the show!

“Most companies spend their money on ad agencies, TV commercials, radio spots, and billboards to tell you how good their products are. Instead, we support the scene, our bands, our athletes and our fans!” – Monster. Following the series of Ken Block’s mind blowing videos, (which you can access by clicking here) Monster presents their new mascot, B.J. Baldwin, trophy truck pilot and stuntman. Baldwin takes the 850-horsepower, 34-inches suspension, 150 mph top speed Monster Energy Trophy Truck for a spin, jumps over a Nissan GT-R, picks up a hot chick, and ruins the photoshoot of a BMW M3 by covering it with sand. He’s destination, Aria hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada for a date. Add to that a couple of drifts, and slow-motion shots and you got yourself the perfect recipe for a million views youtube video. Monster Energy, I salute you for sponsoring those amazing, crazy, professional athletes. Special thanks to Wael Makarem for sharing the video with TheAdsGarage.
BMW have always had astonishing commercials. Recall the “Bullet Commercial” that was released less than a month ago. It was amazing, to advertise their M5 as the fastest sedan available they compared it to the Bullet of a gun. The M5 features an amazing V8 Twin turbo charged engine that was already discussed on TheAdsGarage. For the Olympics, BMW found as usual a nice idea to promote the German athletes while showing their last new born, the magnificent M5. The commercial was shot on the sands of Wales. Several episodes of top gear were filmed on their. The beach is amazing for car drifting. This commercial is simple, original and straight to the point. Enjoy! To check the previous M5 commercials you can type “M5” in the search box at the top of the page.
DC and Ken Block present what we have all been waiting for, the one and only Gymkhana Five: Ultimate Urban Playground; San Francisco. YES this video was shot in the actual streets of San Francisco, California, YES GoPro cameras were harmed in the making of this video, YES this Ford Fiesta burns the 0-60 miles in 1.8 seconds. Well this is the world of Ken Block! Filmed over four days, this Gymkhana is the 5th of the series. Travis Pastrana an old friend of Ken’s also joined the party on his dirt bike. Personally I think it is the best Gymkhana of the series. The video combination of all these thousand of GoPros gave a very nice result.
The scenes, like on minute 3:50 were the car seems immobile and the camera is moving, are filmed thanks to the combination of several Go Pro one next to the other as illustrated in the picture. The result is that amazing footage of that flying car.
